PM urges Poles to get vaccinated

Getting vaccinated “is the best way to combat the coronavirus [...] Each of us and our relatives can contribute to overcoming the pandemic,” Morawiecki said.

The Prime Minister also added that 25,000,000 new daily cases is “an alarming level, which obliges us all to act and respect current restrictions.”

Officials have warned that the number of COVID-19 infections in the country could rise in the weeks ahead as the Delta variant of the coronavirus begins to spread more quickly.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said at the end of last month that the number of daily COVID-19 infections was growing sharply and that “drastic steps” could be necessary to counteract what he called an “explosion of the pandemic” in the country.

Niedzielski said in a media interview earlier this month that the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic was expected to reach its height in Poland in late November or early December, with up to 40,000 daily cases.

As of Friday, Poland had injected around 20.56 million first doses of COVID-19 vaccines, while more than 20.2 million people had been fully inoculated, health ministry data showed.

Poland on Friday reported 23,242 new coronavirus infections and 403 more deaths related to COVID-19, bringing the country's total number of cases during the pandemic to 3,303,046 and fatalities to 80,399.

At the start of this month, third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were made available to all adults in the country.

The booster shot is administered at least six months after full vaccination, using Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines, under rules announced by public health authorities.

Poland's government last month recommended a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for healthcare workers and people over 50.

In late August, people with compromised immune systems were advised to receive a third dose of the vaccine.
